The 23rd of November may not hold much significance to anyone who isn’t a shopaholic, but for us beauty junkies, it’s equivalent to one of the most wonderful times of the year— namely, the Black Friday sales!
Yup, November is drawing to a close, which means prices on our favourite makeup and skincare items are drastically reduced, allowing us to pick up old favourites (and potential new ones!) at a fraction of the price.
There’s no doubt that numerous brands are going to be getting in on this, but here are the ones that we’re most excited for:
Everything at 15% off.
1. Laura Mercier Face Illuminator
The Laura Mercier Face Illuminator is new to Sephora shelves (and comes at a pretty hefty price tag of SGD73), so make sure to snap it up when the Black Friday sale hits! The creamy, buttery texture glides on like a dream, illuminating skin effortlessly and giving that dewy, K-Drama complexion we all aspire to have.
Pick between four varying shades of rose gold, pink, bronze, and gold. Personally, our favourite has to be Devotion, which is a soft, baby pink that probably doubles up great as a blush when used in sparing amounts.
The Laura Mercier Face Illuminator is available at all Sephora outlets and retails at SGD73.
2. Drunk Elephant NightBright Skincare Duo Set
Extravagant shipping fees and long waiting times is a thing of the past now that Drunk Elephant has hit our shores! Get in on this skincare magic by opting for the Drunk Elephant NightBright Skincare Duo Set, which comes with two of Drunk Elephant’s star products: the T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum as well as the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil.
Both products work to refine skin texture and tone for a youthful, radiant glow, banishing dull, tired skin effortlessly along with excess oiliness and the appearance of large pores. Dry, flaking skin is also bound to benefit from the hydrating properties of both products, with it being rich in critical antioxidants as well as omega 6s and 9s.
The products usually costs up to SGD100 for each, but you can get this set for just SGD34. Whoa! We highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t tried out Drunk Elephant products yet, but would like to test the waters— this way, you won’t feel the sting quite so much if the products don’t work for you.
The Drunk Elephant NightBright Skincare Duo Set is available at all Sephora outlets and retails at SGD40.
3. Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette
The newest addition to Huda Beauty’s iconic eyeshadow palettes might just be the prettiest one yet: the Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette! With 18 diverse shades of varying textures, we guarantee that you’ll be able to craft stunning makeup looks from this baby alone.
Expect 10 highly pigmented matte shadow formulas, four reflective shades set with shimmering pearls, two glitter formulas, a single pressed pearl shade and a single concealer base that helps boost eyeshadow intensity. Nice! All shades are also super versatile and works for every occasion, making it a great one to invest in especially if you’re a eyeshadow newbie. Get on this, STAT!
The Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette is available at all Sephora outlets and retails at SGD100.
4. FOREO Luna Mini 2 + Luna Play Gift Set
It doesn’t get any better than FOREO when it comes to cleansing devices, so make sure to snap up this adorable FOREO gift set this Black Friday! The set comes with a LUNA Mini 2 as well as a LUNA Play to give the ultimate cleansing experience.
Utilising T-Sonic pulsations, skin is effectively purified after a long day, with it cleaning out the hardest-to-reach areas easily and effortlessly. Pop the Luna Mini 2 into your travel case for ultimate convenience, while the LUNA Play should fit nicely along your vanity. Each product costs up to SGD200 easily, so this deal is a pretty great one that you should definitely hop on.
The FOREO Luna Mini 2 + Luna Play Gift Set is available at all Sephora outlets and retails at SGD225.
5. Sunday Riley Bright Young Things Visible Skin Brightening Kit
All of Sunday Riley’s bestselling products, all in one place?! Yup, that’s precisely what you’re going to get with the Sunday Riley Bright Young Things Visible Skin Brightening Kit. Containing the Sunday Riley Tide Brightening Enzyme Water Cream, the Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment, and the Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum, it is perfect for those suffering from hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, or anyone with dull, tired skin looking for a complete refresh.
Each product comes in at 15ml, which is ideal for anyone looking to try out the products before taking the plunge and buying the full set. Still, at the amazing price of SGD127, we say that it’s a great deal that skincare junkies should definitely snatch up.
